Career highlights

My time at Craik Jones and starting Lida.

\"I'm not sleeping with you if you're not wearing any clothes.\" My night in the penthouse suite in the Camps Bay Hotel with a female client.

Advice for a wannabe A Lister

Do great work and be nice to Claire Beale.

If you could be anyone else in this business, who would it be?

Rory Sutherland – he's clever, funny, does very little these days, no doubt earns a fortune and I think I would look great in a waistcoat smoking a pipe.

What would you do on a sabbatical?

Go on a riding safari across the Okavango Delta.

Your USP?

My direct and honest approach.

What would you change about yourself?

I'd talk less.

Favourite media

The breakfast show on BBC London.

Favourite shop

Liberty.

What’s the biggest lie you’ve told?

I have never told a lie.

How many toilets do you own?

I don't have any toilets, only lavatories.

What can’t you live without (apart from family)?

Stilton.

Lowdown

Fastidiously organised, Thomas has helped Lida progress into an agency capable of taking on the big boys. A number of new-business wins plus some great work for Mini bodes well for 2009.
